£250 donated to Maryport Educational Settlement

?????????????The Maryport Educational Settlement have been nominated by the Braithwaite Checkpoint on the Lakeland 100.  The Settlement aim to promote the well-being of the local community through the arts.

The Settlement provides a safe environment where individuals from all backgrounds, different levels of personal wellbeing can participate. Everyone involved in activities at The Settlement recognise the positive wellbeing potential of engaging in creative and environmental activities in a friendly, supportive and non-judgmental and safe place.

Part of the work The Settlement undertakes is working with disadvantaged children from a wide range of backgrounds. They provide a number of clubs and sessions aimed at children from Gardening to Arts & Crafts to Summer Camps.

The money donated will be enormously well received as they are a very small group who work with a lot of children and adults from the local area. The funds will go towards running costs of The Settlement and its projects.
